Our Cairns race tips and best bets for today:
Local Trainer Fred Weiland has a smart one here with PRIME RULER (best odds $1.70 with Ladbrokes) shooting for the hat-trick today. Last start, the Walking Or Dancing gelding came off a big Maiden win on this track when he stepped to a Class 2 contest over 1250m, also at the Cannon Park circuit. The rise in class mattered not as destroyed that field as well, winning by 2.5 lengths on the line. He ran his 600m, 2 lengths quicker than benchmark, more than 2 lengths better than his rivals here. Ryan Wiggins made the (rare) trip north from Brisbane for that ride and is making the trip again for today’s ride. Drawn gate three here, he maps to get the run of the race and looks all but past the post.
Trainer Michael Lee makes the one-hour journey down from the Atherton Tablelands with RUBY JULY (best odds $1.70 with Ladbrokes) where she meets her opposition better at the weights today, leaving them with their hands full to stop her pulling off the hat-trick here. Last start, the promising Bel Esprit mare came off a big win in a BM65 at Townsville when she faced-off with a strong Class 4 field, here over the 950m sprint. Making here Cannon Park debut, she did it easy in the end, running her last 600m, 2.8 lengths quicker than benchmark, the best here. This looks no tougher and coming in on the limit, she will be mighty hard to beat today.
Second-up today, the Steve Massingham-trained SWAN CAP (best odds $1.80 with Ladbrokes) is ideally drawn in the small field and will take a mountain of beating today. Last start, the Snitzel gelding was having his first start for the new stable (formerly with the Peter Moody stables at Pakenham) and after a 36-week break, proved too strong in the end for his Maiden rivals, going on to an easy win. His last three runs in Victoria saw him on the podium at each start so the form lined up well for the 1250m Maiden on his new home track. Sharing the lead on settling, he was under pressure on straightening, but was then asked for another effort. He hung out badly, leaving Chris Whiteley no choice but to stop riding and straighten him up. He responded well and once he got going again, he went on to a comfortable win. That was his first race in a clockwise direction (coming from Victoria) and can only learn and benefit from that. Ideally drawn again, he maps to lead from gate two and with that first-up run behind him, he will prove very hard to run down today.
* Consider a three-leg multi today. All three selections in a multi-bet with Ladbrokes is (currently) paying $5.20 for every $1 invested.
